When the weather gets warmer and the days get longer, we girls instinctively know that it’s time to bare our toes, dash to the salon for emergency organic spa pedicures, then slip our pretty feet into even prettier vegan summer sandals!
Why not shoe shop for two?
And if you’re going to shop for shoes, how cool is it to shop with a company that sells vegan shoes and matches your purchase with a shoe donation to a needy child. That company is TOMS. TOMS is a for-profit company, created by Blake Mycoskie, with giving at its core. The name comes from the abbreviation of “Shoes for TOMorrow”. Since millions of children worldwide have inadequate footwear or no shoes at all, your gift can really help.
“With every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes
to a child in need. One for One™. Using the purchasing power of individuals
to benefit the greater good is what we are all about.”

How to get involved
According to TOMS, they also work with NGO and non-profit partners globally to identify areas of need where their shoes can be given “responsibly, sustainably, repeatedly and with high impact on children’s well-being”.
